Banjo Sea Shanties and Beat Train Rambles – Postcard #51

Starting at the Steamboat Island Woodshed, Dave rambles salty original freeverse with Wm. Lenker on banjo and traces personal poetic lineage winding through French impressionalist/symbolist and Brittany sea-coaster Tristan Corbière (prefaced by Victor Hugo).

Then – as sleet, slush and hail beats down on the Mosquito Creek studio skylight – rolls into the beat American 50s and 60s with John Sinclair‘s chronicle Brilliant Corners, Jack Kerouac riding trains from Atop an Underwood, and Gary Snyder arriving from sea from The Backcountry ~ fortified with jazz, joints and hot sake.

  1. I’m an old friend of Bill Lenker’s. I used to live in Olympia. I was looking for Bill on the internet and I found your site. If you would be sweet enough to give him my email address/phone number I would really love to get in touch with him again. He would know me as Mary Brummel.

    Thank you SO much,
